I Can See Clearly Now

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
Oh yes I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin’ for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
Look all around, there’s nothin’ but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin’ but blue skies
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin’ for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day 

 

I Gotta Keep On Moving

Lord I got to keep on moving
Lord I got to get on down
Lord Ive got to keep on moving
Where I cant be found, where I cant be found
Lord they coming after me

Ive been accused on my mission
Jah knows you shouldnt do
For hanging me they were willing yeah! yeah!
And thats why Ive got to get on thru
Lord they coming after me

Lord I got to keep on moving
Lord I got to get on down
Lord Ive got to keep on moving
Where I cant be found
Lord theyre coming after me

I know someday well find that piece
Of land somewhere not nearby babylon
The war will soon be over and africa
Will unite the children who liveth in
Darkness have seen the great light

Ive got two boys and a woman
And I know they wont suffer now
Jah forgive me for not going back
But Ill be there anyhow
Yes Ill be there anyhow

Lord I got to keep on moving
Lord I got to get on down
Lord Ive got to keep on moving
Where I cant be found, where I cant be found
Lord they coming after me

I Know

Wo, man, deh you are!

When the race gets hard to run,
It means you just can’t take the pace.
When it’s time to have your fun,
You find the tears run on down through your face,
Then you stop and think a little:
Are you the victim of the system?
Anyday now they gon’ let you down;
Remember, Natty will be there
To see you through.

(I) And ain’t it good to know (know) now:
Jah will be waiting there.
(I) Ain’t it doggone good to know (know) , you all;
Jah will be waiting there.
Wait in Summer, wait in Spring,
Wait in Autumn, Winter thing,
[*Tribe] goes up, all the tribe goes down:
Bring my children from the end of d’earth

Many a time I sit and wonder why
This race so – so very hard to run,
Then I say to my soul: take courage,
Battle to be won,
Like a ship that’s tossed and driven,
Battered by the angry sea, yea-eah!
Say the tide of time was raging;
Don’t let the fury fall on me, no, no!

(I) ‘Cause I know (know) -know:
Jah will be waiting there;
(I) Ain’t it good to know (know) now:
Jah will be waiting there. Wo-oo-o-oo-o! Ooh, yeah!
Lost and found, who speak I give;
Lost and found, who speak I give;
Speak I give, lost and found.
Lost and found, who speak I give;
Lost and found, who speak I give

I Know A Place

When the whole world lets you down
And there’s nowhere for you to turn
Cause all of your best friends let you down-own-own
And you tried to accumulate
But the world is full of hate
So all of your best thoughts, just adrift through space
I know a place where we can carry on
I know a place where we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on
And this people like you, ooh people like me
People need to be free yeah
There’s a place in the sun where there is love for everyone
Where we can be yeah
I know a place where we can carry on
I know a place where we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on

Yeah when the whole world lets you down
And there’s nowhere for you to turn
Cause all of your best friends have a let you d-down, down-own-own
And you tried to accumulate
But the world is full of hate
So all of your best thoughts, just adrift through space 
I know a place where we can carry on
I know a place where we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on
We can carry on, we can carry on…

 

I Shot The Sheriff

(I shot the sheriff
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
I shot the sheriff
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.)
Yeah! All around in my home town,
They’re tryin’ to track me down;
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a deputy,
For the life of a deputy.
But I say:

Oh, now, now. Oh!
(I shot the sheriff.) – the sheriff.
(But I swear it was in selfdefence.)
Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
I say: I shot the sheriff – Oh, Lord! –
(And they say it is a capital offence.)
Yeah! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!

Sheriff John Brown always hated me,
For what, I don’t know:
Every time I plant a seed,
He said kill it before it grow –
He said kill them before they grow.
And so:

Read it in the news:
(I shot the sheriff.) Oh, Lord!
(But I swear it was in self-defence.)
Where was the deputy? (Oo-oo-oh)
I say: I shot the sheriff,
But I swear it was in selfdefence. (Oo-oh) Yeah!

Freedom came my way one day
And I started out of town, yeah!
All of a sudden I saw sheriff John Brown
Aiming to shoot me down,
So I shot – I shot – I shot him down and I say:
If I am guilty I will pay.

(I shot the sheriff,)
But I say (But I didn’t shoot no deputy),
I didn’t shoot no deputy (oh, no-oh), oh no!
(I shot the sheriff.) I did!
But I didn’t shoot no deputy. Oh! (Oo-oo-ooh)

Reflexes had got the better of me
And what is to be must be:
Every day the bucket a-go a well,
One day the bottom a-go drop out,
One day the bottom a-go drop out.
I say:

I – I – I – I shot the sheriff.
Lord, I didn’t shot the deputy. Yeah!
I – I (shot the sheriff) –
But I didn’t shoot no deputy, yeah! No, yeah! 

 

I’m Hurting Inside 

When I was just a little child,
Happiness was there awhile.
Then from me, yeah, it slipped one day.
Happiness, come back, I say.
‘Cause if you don’t come, I’ve got to go
Lookin’ for happiness.
Well, if you don’t come, I’ve got to go
Lookin’, Lord, for happiness, happpiness.
I’m hurting inside.
I’m hurting inside.
Oh, hear my cry, hear my cry, yeah,
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, cry.
Been together like school children,
Then you hurt me just in vain.
Lord, I’m your weary child.
Happiness, come back awhile.
‘Cause if you don’t come, I’ve got to go
Lookin’ for happiness.
The road is dangerous.
Well, if you don’t come, I’ve got to go
Lookin’, Lord, for happiness, happiness.
I’m hurting inside.
I’m hurting inside. (Repeat)
Feel the pain, feel the pain.
I’m hurting inside.
I’m hurting inside.

I’m Still Waiting

I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting,
I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting for you,
Why oh why, why oh why?
I said my feet won’t keep me up anymore.
Ev’ry little beat my heart beats, girl,
It’s at your door.
I just wanna love you
And I’m never gonna hurt you, girl.
So why won’t you come out to me now, girl?
Oh, can’t you see I’m under your spell?
But, I got to, got to go.
Why, girl, oh why, girl?
Whoa, my gosh the rain is falling,
And I just can’t stop calling.
And I just can’t tell the raindrops
From my teardrops
Falling down my face.
Look at it,
It isn’t really raindrops.
I’m still waiting,
Teardrops falling down my face.
I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting,
I’m still waiting, I’m still waiting,
Yes I will.
I wait in the rain, I wait in the sun.
Please, relieve me from these pains,
Oh pains, just pains.
I love you, yes I do.
But tell me, do you really love me, too.

Iron Lion Zion

I am on the rock and then I check a stock
I have to run like a fugitive to save the life I live
I’m gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion (repeat)
Iron Lion Zion
I’m on the run but I ain’t got no gun
See they want to be the star
So they fighting tribal war
And they saying Iron like a Lion in Zion
Iron like a Lion in Zion,
Iron Lion Zion

I’m on the rock, (running and you running)
I take a stock, (running like a fugitive)
I had to run like a fugitive just to save the life I live
I’m gonna be Iron like a Lion in Zion (repeat)
Iron Lion Zion, Iron Lion Zion, Iron Lion Zion
Iron like a Lion in Zion, Iron like a Lion in Zion
Iron like a Lion in Zion

Is This Love 

I wanna love you and treat you right;
I wanna love you every day and every night:
We’ll be together with a roof right over our heads;
We’ll share the shelter of my single bed;
We’ll share the same room, yeah! – for Jah provide the bread.

Dont worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: dont worry about a thing,

Every little thing gonna be all right. dont worry!
